Paradox Haze Discussion
1 day ago
Lazaro46 I'd say that overall, the deck has been performing pretty well at a casual level, maybe 50% tuned decks. If I were to mark the things that are in most dire need of change, it would definitely be the curve and the early game. If you were looking at upgrading the build that is posted here, I would take out some of the weaker win cons such as Herald of Leshrac and some of the less useful cards such as Drana's Emissary and Aven Mimeomancer. The early game is where this deck can struggle; if it gets a good start then it will faceroll against decks of a similar power level, but it can really struggle if it doesn't get a t3 or t4 Paradox Haze + abuser. Additionally, I would run a LOT more interaction. This version of the deck is super greedy, running almost no removal and no counterspells which tends to lead to losing a lot of games.
In summary, I'd take out all but your 5 or so win cons of choice and run some more interaction and more control elements. I'd take out most of the cards like Aven Mimeomancer and Martial Law since they don't do much to slow down an entire table, and I'd add more ways of consistently finding and protecting your good win conditions such as Mirror-Sigil Sergeant. I'll be the first to admit that there aren't a ton of ways that this card wins for you, which is why this is a VERY casual deck. Best of luck in your paradoxical ventures :)

How has this deck been for you? Is it fun to play? What cards are over performing, and which ones are not doing that good?

If you want the upkeep step to punish your opponent more than it does you, Paradox Haze is an easy way to accomplish that. It immediately doubles the costs Musician forces them to pay!
You would probably appreciate the inclusion of Vedalken AEthermage - she can fetch Musician if you haven't drawn one yet, as he's the centerpiece of the deck. Even if you don't need one, though, she can get any other creature in the deck, too! Talk about handy.

Personally, I would build him zombie focused, with all the lords, Vengeful Dead, Shepherd of Rot, and Paradox Haze to trigger the zombie life loss 2 times a turn. You would generally want 8-10 mana rocks (like Commander's Sphere ), draw cards like Phyrexian Arena, and the sacking cards like Grave Pact. Endless Ranks of the Dead and Diregraf Colossus just get ridiculous. GL with this.

Thanks for your suggestions! This is a pretty rough list right now; there's a lot of cards I need to get, many of which you've suggested (Liliana, Death's Majesty, Liliana's Mastery, Shepherd of Rot, Zombie Master). This deck is admittedly a low priority among my EDH lists, (owning nine Commander decks really hurts my wallet) but I'm looking forward to teching it out as it is next on my list to upgrade.
I would absolutely run Lord of the Undead and Relentless Dead if it weren't for the fact that both of those cards are quite expensive for me. Since Standard is about to rotate out Shadows Over Innistrad, I figure I can pick up the latter once it cycles out for a better price.
Dralnu, Lich Lord isn't really good for my playgroup. Aside from the fact that I'm focusing on a creature-based deck as opposed to instant/sorceries, there's about two too many copies of Blasphemous Act floating around that would really punish me.
Breathstealer's Crypt looks cool, always love older janky cards that synergise well. I'm just concerned about revealing every card I draw; I love to play politically and I think that could hurt me.
Dread Slaver used to be in the list, and from playtesting I can say it underperformed. A lot. I could never create a favorable combat situation in which my opponent would actually block/attack into it. Creatures can just be really big in EDH.
Zombie Infestation is a pretty good card, but I like to tutor up Necropotence pretty often and discarding has antisynergy with it.
Other cards I'm looking to add would be Graveborn Muse (I get to draw into whatever I didn't scry away), Risen Executioner (as a more budget Zombie lord), Hero's Downfall (to strictly upgrade Murder), Buried Alive (just a casual 3-for-3 tutor), and Paradox Haze (because duh).
Thanks again for your upvote!
